Here's one record that's not likely to be shattered anytime soon (or at least we hope not). While it's no secret that USB drives have been gradually getting smaller and smaller (that's what we all wanted, right?), this trend has apparently led to an increasing amount of lost flash drives from folks who can't keep up with minuscule property. In meretricious fashion, Chris Spurgeon actually went so far as to "embed his flash drive" into a regulation sixteen-pound Galaxie 300 bowling ball in order to keep it from vanishing while out on the town. While attaching this device to laptops and PCs within cramped confines probably isn't desirable, it should definitely keep that precious data out of the washing machine, but we doubt this bad boy lands a strike anytime soon with such an extrusion.
